a story that needs to be told

this story is incomplete

it has not been fully shared

with my countrymen and with my fellow citizens of the world

and through this art, and through this poetry

i intend to complete this story.

my spirit is soaring

and imploring you to complete this story.

I implore you to heed my words,

brothers and sisters

because this is a story that needs to be said,

this is a story that needs to be told

this is a song that needs to be sung.

But I defy the critics to call it anything other than poetry.
